FERGUSON FIRED
Toronto fired general manager John Ferguson on Tuesday, replacing him with former GM Cliff Fletcher on an interim basis. The Maple Leafs, who have missed the playoffs the past two years, are 14th in the Eastern Conference standings with a 19-22-5-3 record. The 72-year-old Fletcher served as GM of the Maple Leafs from 1991 to 1997.

HIGH FIVES
New Jersey equaled a team record with five power-play goals and beat Philadelphia for the fifth straight time with Tuesday night's 7-3 victory. The Devils had five power-play goals two other times in club history. The club was known as the Colorado Rockies when they scored six power-play goals in an 8-6 win over the Flyers on Feb. 19, 1980. New Jersey came into the game 28th in the NHL with a conversion rate of 14 percent.

GET SHORTY
The New York Islanders tied a club record with three short-handed goals in Tuesday night's 6-3 win at Carolina. The Islanders had done it twice before, first against Washington in 1983 and then in a tie with Ottawa in 2000.

ONE-SIDED SERIES
Montreal extended its winning streak over Boston to nine games after crushing the Bruins 8-2 on Tuesday night. The Canadiens, who are 6-0 against Boston this season after going 5-3-0 the previous season, have outscored the Bruins 20-6 in three games at the Bell Centre this season, including a 7-4 win on Nov. 17, the team's second seven-goal game of the season, and a 6-1 win on Oct. 22.

THE REPLACEMENTS
Pittsburgh's Evgeni Malkin was one of five players chosen Tuesday as All-Star replacements for this weekend's festivities in Atlanta. The announcement came hours after the Penguins said star Sidney Crosby - the league's reigning MVP and scoring champion - will be out six to eight weeks with a high ankle sprain. Joining Malkin on the East squad is Boston goalie Tim Thomas, a surprise replacement for New Jersey starter Martin Brodeur, who must miss the game because of a family obligation. Defenseman Scott Niedermayer and forward Corey Perry from Anaheim were added to the West team, as was Dallas forward Mike Ribeiro. Detroit's Henrik Zetterberg withdrew, along with Colorado forward Paul Stastny and Stars defenseman Sergei Zubov.

EXTENDED VIEWING
Versus has picked up an option to televise NHL games for three more years. Terms of the deal were not immediately available. The cable network, formerly known as OLN, began televising NHL games during the 2005-06 season. It paid $65 million for the first year, $70 million for the second, and exercised a $72.5 million option for this season.

REWARDED
Goalie Ilya Bryzgalov has signed a three-year contract extension with Phoenix, the young team he has helped become a winner this season. A league source, speaking on the condition of anonymity because the club does not make salaries public, said the deal is worth $12.75 million. Acquired off waivers from Stanley Cup-champion Anaheim on Nov. 17, Bryzgalov has appeared in 28 games for the Coyotes, going 16-10-2 with a 2.33 goals against average.

MAKING MOVES
Sergei Fedorov was placed on the injured list Tuesday by Columbus, who also activated center Andrew Murray and made a trade with Colorado. The Blue Jackets traded minor leaguers Darcy Campbell and Philippe Dupuis to the Avalanche for right wing Mark Rycroft.

SEASON OVER
Chris Campoli of the New York Islanders will undergo season-ending shoulder surgery this week. Campoli, in his third NHL season, dislocated his shoulder last week during the Islanders' victory at New Jersey. New York secured another defenseman on Tuesday, agreeing to terms with Freddy Meyer on a two-year deal.

SPEAKING
``We looked like a junior team.'' - Atlanta goalie Kari Lehtonen after a 4-0 loss to the New York Rangers on Tuesday night.
